Native Plants for Homeowners Workshop
Saturday, Feb 21, 9:30 – 11 a.m.
August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area

New to native plants, and not sure where to start? Naturally resilient native grasses, flowers, shrubs, and trees are great solutions to common gardening problems. They also attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and songbirds. Learn landscape design ideas, sources to purchase plants, and more. Take home some seedlings in time for spring planting. Please dress for the weather for field time in the native gardens.
Reservations begin February 6; call 636-441-4554.
